ABOUT THE PROJECT
Development of a smart software facilitating travels
Project TraveλEYes, is financed by the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, (under the call RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE (project code: T1EDK- 01794), and it aims at the implementation of a smart software for mobile devices (such as smartphones or tablets), featuring real-time image recognition capabilities, for the extraction of semantic information related with foods and herbs.
The software will be able to run on a mobile device, and will give to the user the ability to record a photo and based on it, get semantic information regarding its contents.
In general, there is no any limitation about the content which can be anything from food to monuments, coasts etc.
Apart from the first level of information, (e.g. which food, which herb etc.), extra information levels will also be embedded as metadata (e.g. ingredients, nutrition elements, etc.). Finally, these information, will be able to form an internet quote to further provide information to the user in a fast an easy way.
The software will be able to learn through a training procedure to recognise any image category. By using TraveλEYes application, millions of tourists visiting Greece, will have the ability for easy access to important information.
